Anniversary Recap

Well, we had a FANTASTIC first anniversary! We decided to stick with the traditional gift-giving for wedding anniversaries as a fun tradition. So, this year the theme was paper. Now before I get into details, I must recognize that Bri is getting REALLY good at thinking about gifts and I need to step up my game!!!

I thought I was really clever to get him funny paper shooting targets...they are pretty cool if I say so myself. I thought the Zombie targets suited him nicely and I really liked the idea of these games to play to make shooting more interesting/fun for the less serious crowd (ME!).

Now here comes the REALLY good gift! As Bri explained, he wanted to get me something that was special and that would last forever so that I could remember our first anniversary...he wanted it to be special! The bad news was that he waited until April 30th to shop for it...so I got to play a guessing game to figure out what it was and then he showed me the picture online...so, the gifts in the mail!

It's a first printed, first edition signed copy of my favorite book - Summer Sisters! I love it!!!

After gifts, we went to Meson Sabika for dinner. Who would have thought you would need reservations there on a Monday night!!! Oh well, noted for next year. We had a seat at the bar and had a drink and some goat cheese and olives...what more could we ask for? We were seated soon after we got there where we were treated to complimentary champagne and compliments from strangers...the compliments from strangers being that a woman told me I looked like the girl from the Hunger Games...I WILL TAKE IT!!!

After dinner we went to Fox & Hound for drinks. They had a huge beer offering and we tried some new ones. I let Bri pick for me and he selected Dragon's Milk which was disgusting!!! But, I felt like I was in Game of Thrones and was the Calisi...AKA Dragon Mother.

Happy Anniversary!!! Here's to many more!!!
